Hi all,

Just in case it's of interest or useful to someone, the (CX4) 10GbE modules for the old HP Procurve 3400cl switches seems to work decently with Mellanox cards in 10GbE mode. :)

(I had a bunch of computer and comms gear in storage overseas for a few years. It turned up earlier this week, so I've been trying stuff out).

FreeNAS 9.10 is happily serving (CIFS) through this cheapo 10GbE setup to a bunch of desktop PC's here, and it's all "just working".

The 3400cl switches and the 10GbE CX4 modules for them can still be found fairly cheaply on eBay. eg:
Completely out of warranty period though. ;)

Note - I don't know either of those sellers. They were just the first cheap ones from an ebay search.

Anyway, hope that's useful for someone. :)

Heh Heh Heh. I knew I was sleepy when posting that, but not THAT sleepy. ;)
Item location: South El Monte, California, United States
Good point. Don't be thrown off by the ebay.co.uk bit in the URL, that's just my local site. :)

Changing the URL to ebay.com seems to work. The US site loads the correct item. I've changed the URL in the post above for less confusion.
